Attract mode (HyperPC) can't launch any game!
« on: June 24, 2018, 09:33:20 AM »
I have installed HyperPC with many games. HyperPC is made to work out of the box and comes with many emulators and all configs already done.
HyperPC uses Attract-Mode to launch the games, so that's why i'm here. When i first installed it, configured some personal settings, and almost everything worked.
Then i remember one day trying to get PinballFX working, because the config file for it wasn't working. I finally got it working, something happened and now none of the games work.
I tried editing the config files, and even replacing the whole attract-mode folder with the original HyperPC folder, and same problem. I can see all the games, and everything else works in attract mode, but the games won't launch! I have tried launching some games through only Rocketlauncher, and it works, with all the splash-screens and everything.

What should I do? I have come to the conclusion that the fault lies in Attract-Mode. It is a very good program and everything worked in the beginning as said, but something just went wrong.

My system:

i5 750 @3.2GHz

ASUS p7p55d-e

8GB Hyperx 1600MHz

Hyperx 120GB SSD

4 other harddrives

HIS iceq x HD 6870

Windows 7 64-bit

Did you mean this?
This is the config file of my super nintendo emulator (retroarch), which as said did work in the beginning, but not anymore.
And none of the other ones work either, not even ones like pinballfx.

your settings seems correct

I'm using zsnes for SNES

Generate your Collection/Rom List again:
start AM > press TAB > Emulators > Your Emulator > Generate Collection/Rom List > try starting a romfile

if not:
Download console version of AM from here > unzip > rename the attract.exe to attract_console.exe > copy this attract_console.exe to your AM folder > start it > start your romfile > you see any errors in command window
AM Version : 2.3.0
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
